Oleks ZInchenko is cherishing every moment. The Ukrainian star is having a great season and wants to start Saturday in the UCL Final. Let’s see what he had to say about that, pressure and much more-

“I couldn’t even dream when I was a kid that one day I could be in the Champions League final,”

“But dreams come true and everyone is so excited about this. We are just trying to prepare ourselves as much as we can and hopefully we can do our job.

“Everyone wants to get the Champions League trophy and everyone wants to achieve this.

“We are going to prepare as much as we can and try our best. Every football player is dreaming about lifting this title because it is so nice. This is something special. You have to dream about things sometimes because dreams come true.”

“I am excited about the final, but at the same time I am a little bit nervous which is normal as I am a human being and we are not machines. I guess everyone has a little bit of nerves which is normal.

“As soon as you are on the pitch you have to take it out and just be focused on the game. Everyone is dreaming about this and wants to lift it. We are just doing our job and the rest is not for us.”

“I am pretty sure he is going to find the right words to say to the team because he is number one in the world and he has got that experience.”

Zinchenko feels like a great player and person. His enthusiasm must be infectious for the team and coaching staff. He deserves the starting spot on Saturday at left back.

We’ll see how he contributes.
